The 2020 Oscars Nominations Yet Again Shut Out Female Directors

All four of those films are nominated for best picture, alongside Ford V Ferrari, released in the United Kingdom as Le Mans '66, Jojo Rabbit, Little Women, Marriage Story and Parasite. Issa Rae, who announced the nominees with John Cho, put it perfectly when she said, "Congratulations to those men".

Gerwig ultimately scored a nominations in the best adapted screenplay category. For Best Director, Martin Scorsese, Todd Phillips, Sam Mendes, Quentin Tarantino, and Bong Joon-ho received nominations.

Issa Rae found the ideal way to hit the Oscar's with some classy shade. Let's hope next year's nominee list is more with the times. Little Women was also nominated for best picture and individual nominations were earned by Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh.

To date, only one woman-Kathryn Bigelow for her 2009 movie The Hurt Locker-has ever won the prestigious award.

The exclusion of Greta Gerwig's name has created a stir among people and a lot of celebrities are coming out in support of the filmmaker after she got snubbed in the Directing category of the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards.

Notable omissions from the category this year are Greta Gerwig (Little Women), Lulu Wang (The Farewell), Melina Matsoukas (Queen & Slim), Céline Sciamma (Portrait Of A Lady On Fire) and Lorene Scafaria (Hustlers).

Speaking to reporters, the President of ABC Television Entertainment in the US, Karey Burke, said: "Let me confirm it now".

I'm really happy that the Academy recognized [Gerwig] for Adapted Screenplay and Picture, and I feel like if you've been nominated for Best Picture, you have essentially been nominated for Best Director.

Had she been nominated, Gerwig would have been the first woman in history to be nominated for best director twice.

While in the supporting categories, Sir Anthony Hopkins is recognised for his work on The Two Popes alongside Tom Hanks for A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood, Al Pacino and his The Irishman co-star Joe Pesci and Brad Pitt for Once Upon A Time...
